I think for black women,it has more of a revolutionary meaning than if other races went around saying it. We and our people were raised other institutional racism and also taught to hate our hair and ancestry. The natural hair movement is more than just hair for black women because we were made to feel that our hair, our features ,our ancestry were less than.
Of course other races have natural hair, but natural to us wouldn't mean the same as so many of us have not been taught to love and accept our hair. It's sad as many black women don't grow up even wearing their natural hair or learning how to care for it without heat and end up getting a relaxer or began seeing weave and extensions as a necessity to being beautiful.

I was just wondering if anyone feels the same way:
Can I just say that I have curly, kinky, coily, or nappy hair?
Do white/ hispanic/ asian women and men go around stating that they have natural hair?
